  • Alan Cox: Linux 2.4.9-ac12 (2001-09-18 22:30:00)

  • Eben Moglen: Enforcing the GNU GPL (2001-09-18 20:48:02)
    "Microsoft's anti-GPL offensive this summer has sparked renewed speculation about whether the GPL is ``enforceable.'' This particular example of ``FUD'' (fear, uncertainty and doubt) is always a little amusing to me. I'm the only lawyer on earth who can say this, I suppose, but it makes me wonder what everyone's wondering about: Enforcing the GPL is something that I do all the time."

  • Linus Torvalds: Linux 2.4.10-pre11 (2001-09-18 07:19:39)
    "Ok, the big thing here is continued merging, this time with Andrea. I still don't like some of the VM changes, but integrating Andrea's VM changes results in (a) better performance and (b) much cleaner inactive page handling in particular. Besides, for the 2.4.x tree, the big priority is stability, we can re-address my other concerns during 2.5.x."
